Mr Trump and 18 of his associates were indicted by a grand jury in Atlanta last week on charges related to their alleged effort to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. All those accused in the case have reportedly had until Friday to come forward. Mr Trump does expected arrive on Thursday.
“I will be traveling to Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday to be ARRESTED,” the former president wrote in a post on the Truth Social platform Monday.
It’s becoming routine for Mr. Trump, who has already been charged in three other criminal cases this year. He was indicted first in New York for alleged involvement in a hush money scheme, then in Florida for his alleged misuse of classified documents, and then in Washington, DC for his role in the January 6 riot.
Now Trump faces even more legal problems in another jurisdiction over his alleged attempts to hijack American democracy.
Despite his legal troubles, however, Mr. Trump remains the leading pollster in the Republican presidential nomination race. Mr. Trump’s key rivals for the bid will meet Wednesday night in Milwaukee for the first debate of the Republican primary season. Candidates Gov. Ron DeSantis and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy — who are second or third in most polls — are looking to boost their prestige in the primary race.
Mr Trump himself has chosen to skip the debate, arguing that the debate is not worth the political risk given his large lead in the polls.
For now, Mr. Trump’s dominance in the Republican race could be assured. However, it remains to be seen how his legal troubles might complicate his attempt to return to the White House as the possibility of a conviction in the four criminal trials looms.
